It is a beautifully composed, riveting read scaffolded by Pascoe's signature commitment to watertight research of the colonial archives.

This book will leave you famished for red earth, rainforests, billabongs and big sky Country.' - Shannon Foster, D'harawal Knowledge Keeper, PhD Candidate and Lecturer UTS
